Paper Mache

Postby MauEvig » Thu Jul 30, 2015 6:51 pm

Anyone have any luck using paper mache to make their own costumes? I've never used it myself but it seems like a lot of people can get really creative using that stuff.

What do you think?

I tried making a mask once, it's a messy process and it weighed a ton.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Yeah, paper mâché would probably be awkward. There's always upholstery foam?

It looked like they might have some on walmart.com that didn't seem too badly priced, but it makes me wonder how well I can work with it. Working with things like clay is one thing, foam a completely different story. I could probably try it. I looked it up and people were able to make some detailed cat and dog masks, and someone made a minecraft outfit out of it.

As far as paper mache goes I haven't used it since I was in...I think 6th grade when we made those miniature castles for the Medeval faire.
